Aly Fairfield

Shih Tzu

5 years, 1 month
Small  |  Female

Pataskala, OH


Aly's adoption donation is $350 and she is being fostered in central Ohio. She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention as well as flea prevention.
Aly came into rescue from a local shelter as her owner could no longer care for her. If you are looking for the sweetest little girl who wants to be nothing more than your lapdog, then that would be little 5 year old, 12 pound Aly (or Munchkin as we like to call her). She does well with both men and women. Aly gets along with other dogs in the home and has recently started to take interest in chew toys. She demonstrates good potty manners if you keep her on a schedule. She can walk on a leash but gets overstimulated and wants to follow her nose. Aly is very easy to redirect and will develop well with praise and consistent direction. She would do best in an environment where she is not required to be crated. Due to Aly's small size, she would do best in a home with children over the age of 8. Aly enjoys the company of people most but does well home alone if there is the company from some other doggie companions.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances. If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.
Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Our Adoption Process The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:
Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog. We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved. It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.
Special Requirements Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable. If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence. Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets.
The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information. If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed. Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home. No application is approved prior to the home visit being done. At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.
Out of State Adoptions We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer. We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
